Nikos2002...

Have a slight issue with my DX5c binding. I have had the radio for a while now but barely use it. I just this weekend picked up another SR415 to bind in one of my new trucks. I have tried it multiple times and it wont bind to the receiver at all. I was able to bind to one of my other 2 channel receivers just fine. But it wont bind to the SR415 at all. I was however able to bind the sr415 to my old DX3S just fine. Any suggestions?

My setup is:
Hobbywing WP1080
Axial 35t motor
Savox SW-1210SG

I think it's a great radio especially for the price. If you're not some top level racer that needs the best of the best, it's more than enough radio for your needs. However, I too had some issues with the binding at first...but it was more of a timing thing, literally had to put in the mind plug, turn on car and hit bind in perfect order. I have 4 receivers for it now and all work great.

I appreciate your work as well RazorRc keep it up.

Are you binding at 11ms frame rate? You need to.

Another thing to remember with binding. You can't have the radio right next to our car when you do it. They need to have a separation - maybe an arms length to do it.

I am sure I know the answer to this question, but is there anyway to bind the DX5C to my SR201 rx that came with my DX2E?

Hey slick (always wanted to say that) with the DX5C you need a DSM2/DSMR receiver.

Default Love it but....

I just got mine a few weeks ago. I really like it except for one thing, the trigger isn't open enough for my fat finger. Is there an optional trigger with a more open spread for those of us who like a little play? Other than that one little detail i like this one better than any other I've owned so far.

No, there is not a different trigger for this guy. We try to find that happy medium. Check you PM, I sent you some ideas to try.

I've been using this radio for club racing for almost a year now. With my son and I racing three cars a piece, I had to put my money on the more important things. Tires.
​​​​​​I am running Duracell nimh Batts, I added a charge plug to the inside tray. They don't last nearly as long as lithium cells, But it saves me a little money.
Has anyone tried putting in a 6v Bec with a 3s lipo?

Not me, but I've modified other radios to use a 2S LiFe battery. These put out between 6.2-6.7V and are usually within the voltage specification. I looked for info on the DX5C input voltage range and unfortunately couldn't find anything, so not sure if it would work.

The software in the radio was not really designed to work with a lipo/life to help keep the unit cost in a specific range. We use the 5C quite a bit for video shoots and testing and regular AA's (popular brand batteries). Have a good run time. Only time I ever had an issue was when I got $1 store batteries.

Evening club races once a week have me charging the same set of NiMh AAs once a month, and that's more as a precaution. I never see the low voltage alarm.

BTW, the new Spektrum SR215 receivers looks pretty awesome. Small, 5.5ms frame rate, no bind plug (yes!) and pretty cheap ($30). I don't have one to test, but I like what I'm seeing so far.

Thanks!
